The support provided by local authorities under Section 17 & Section 20 of the Children act, 1989, has been recognised by the government & courts as being an essential safety net to protect the most vulnerable children and families who have No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) from destitution. This course will provide delegates with a clear understanding of the legislation and case law in relation to families with NRPF and UASC (Unaccompanie Asylum Seeking Children). It will examine the complexities involved in the completing of these assessments and the importance of getting the assessments right, not just for the children & families but to prevent a legal challenge for the local authority under the Human Rights Act, 1998 in addition to the arrangements for working jointly with the UK Border Agency
